Carol's Lamb

Carol Evelyn, daughter of James A. and Willie F. Fitzgerald, spent just five short days on this earth. Her little body was laid to rest in Snow Spring Church Cemetery at Snow Spring (Unadilla), Georgia. The lamb placed on top of her tombstone symbolizes purity, innocence, and Christ. It is a common find on infant markers.

I think Carol's lamb is one of the cutest I've seen. It looks almost like a stuffed animal!

That is an adorable lambie! I saw some really cute ones at Bonaventure. I love the lamb monuments although they are sad.

My local cemetery has a lamb monument so weather-eroded it looks like a seal.
